Traveling to Ladakh is all about filling your diaries with chapters full of experiences. Beyond the leisure and monastic side of Ladakh, there are stunning silver sand dunes of Hunder in the Nubra Valley region. A beautiful but remote village, Hunder is the oasis to the cold desert that Nubra valley is.
The high altitude desert, with rolling expanse of sand dunes and barren landscape is the USP of Hunder village. The cold desert and sand dunes seem enigma to scores of tourists who come to visit the spectacle.

There are no buses to Nubra Valley. Even if there are, they are not very regular. Public transport is very intermittent and you’ll need to have your own car or cab to drive there.
To reach the Hunder Sand Dunes, one can hire a cab from Leh, which will take approximately 4-6 hours, and will cut and run through Khardung La Pass (40 KMs), Khardung Village (34 KMs), Khalsar (23 KMs) and Diskit (19 KMs). There’s also another way out. Tourists can travel alternatively from Pangong Tso to Nubra Valley via Shyok (160km) and via Wari La (236km).
There is no direct air link to Hunder. You’ll need to fly to Leh and then drive to Nubra Valley which is a 4 – 5 hour drive away.
The nearest railhead to Nubra Valley would be at Jammu Tawi, which is around 750 kms away. In order to reach Kaza by train, one has to first travel from Jammu to Leh and then from there to Kaza.
